Bulgarian Visa Formalities

General Information

Generally, the Bulgarian legislation concerning foreign citizens is in compliance with the EU regulations related to immigration policy. The Constitution of the Republic of Bulgaria, the Foreign Nationals Act (passed in 1998), the Regulation on the Application of the Foreign Nationals Act and the Ordinance on Issuing Visas regulate the legal status of foreign nationals in Bulgaria.

When Bulgaria joined the European union on 1 January 2007, foreigners are now considered all persons who are not citizens of any of the member states of the European Union, the European Economic Area and the Swiss Confederation (hereinafter referred to as “European citizens”). European Union citizens do not need a visa to enter Bulgaria. They enter and leave the country with an identity card or a passport. They can stay and reside in Bulgaria for a period up to three months starting from the date of their first entry without need to obtain any permits or certificates.

The foreign nationals whose status is governed by the Foreign Nationals Act must obtain a visa before entering in Bulgaria unless they are subject to visa waiver agreements.
